    That's pretty....actually TOO pretty. I really take care of my guitars, and don't "bash" them about, but I'd be afraid of that one getting "hurt". ;)

    These can be a good starting point for a project guitar, but unless the ad lists the weight of the guitar, you are rolling the dice. I've worked on a bunch of these knock-offs, and many of them are quite heavy for a Tele (8+ lbs).

    yeah it's a chender i just looked at it on ebay no headstock shot and photo shopped out fake logo, i can't say much good about it as it's a chinese fake, maybe it will be great but what you will get might not be as good as the one in the picture looks, i have had complete garbage like this in the past and once burned never again! ill build my own buy a squier or a fender but never a fake again. but it does look well made in this case https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Standard...779480?hash=item48d8226a98:g:kzkAAOSwmnFd0~pI

    I vote no. That's alotta jack for a non fender. I'm not familiar with the various fender models like other guys but for three bills I know you can get something better that this thing, albeit used.
